    Clyde Drexler plays defense

    Clyde Drexler has been back in the spotlight, in because the entire 1992 Dream Team is back in the spotlight, in part because he’s said some outrageous things. Through it all, Drexler has come off as a little bit bitter. He sounds frustrated that the Dream Team was about Jordan and Magic and Barkley and…

  2. Deron Williams wants no part of the Dream Team vs. 2012 debate

    Jul 15, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    US Roster Basketball

    It’s easy to get sucked up into the debate. It’s compelling, right? The best team arguably ever assembled, but held up in spite of the vast differential in athleticism, conditioning, and speed of the game. The modern team held up as a contradictory juxtaposition, a contrarian’s dream, with Kobe, LeBron, and KD at the forefront.…

    The book now on top of every hoops junkie’s reading list is Sports Illustrated’s Jack McCallum’s new book on the Dream Team. Not just because of what Clyde Drexler said about Magic Johnson, or because of what Kobe thinks, but because this book will tell stories and add depth to the best basketball team ever…

    Dominican Republic US Basketball

    LAS VEGAS — Did you really expect Kobe Bryant would back down from anyone or anything? Remember Kobe said he thought this year’s Team USA could beat the Dream Team. Which stirred plenty of debate. After the USA beat the Dominican Republic like they were the freshman team on Thursday night, Kobe was asked about…

  5. Jordan laughs at idea current Olympic team could challenge Dream Team

    Jul 12, 2012, 1:23 PM EDT

    1992-dreamteam

    Just like Charles Barkley… what did you really expect Michael Jordan to say? We’ve told you Kobe Bryant said he thought this current team could beat the Dream Team (because guys like Magic and Bird were at the end of their careers), that Mike Krzyzewski (who was an assistant coach in 1992) didn’t blow the…

    1992-dreamteam

    There exist books on most every subject written from most every angle imaginable. There are do-it-yourself guides to construct your vessel to the afterlife. There is a definitive handbook on colloquial speech on the high seas. There are memoirs filled with irredeemable drivel, helpful travel guides written in anapestic tetrameter, and dizzying, sprawling novels drowned…

  7. LeBron could equal remarkable Jordan record with Olympic gold

    Jul 7, 2012, 10:02 AM EDT

    LeBron James Team USA

    In 1992, Michael Jordan had a year as great as any basketball player ever. He averaged 30 points a game shooting 51.9 percent to win the NBA MVP, then carried that over to the playoffs where he led the Bulls to an NBA Championship. In the process, he was named the NBA finals MVP. Then…

    Rich Cho

    Bobcats GM Rich Cho comes at his job differently than the other 29 guys who have these gigs.

    Jordan Kerr

    It’s just one of the legendary stories about how intense Michael Jordan was during practice for the Bulls… The day he just punched Steve Kerr during practice. Kerr, now an analyst with TNT, was on the Dan Patrick show and recalled that day (via Nina Falcone at CSNChicago.com). “I disagreed with him one time,” Kerr…

  10. There is support out there for Bobcats new coach Dunlap

    Jun 19, 2012, 7:59 AM EDT

    Mike Dunlap

    In all the stories about the Charlotte Bobcats coaching search, we at PBT dutifully listed Mike Dunlap, assistant coach at St. Johns, among the guys interviewed. Like you, we thought that a courtesy interview because he knew somebody, he was not a guy on most people’s NBA radar. But he got the job. And while…

  11. Charlotte Bobcats hire Mike Dunlap, assistant coach at St. John’s

    Jun 18, 2012, 9:50 PM EDT

    Well… I mean… you know… the one thing you can say is… huh. Yeah, that about sums it up. The Charlotte Observer first reported and a half-dozen news outlets are confirming that the Charlotte Bobcats have hired a coach. It’s not Brian Shaw. It’s not Jerry Sloan. It’s not Quin Snyder. It’s Mike Dunlap, former…

  12. Jerry Sloan pulls out of Charlotte Bobcats coaching search

    Jun 14, 2012, 7:48 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Atlanta Hawks

    Jerry Sloan, the long-time Jazz head man who was one of the three finalists for the Charlotte Bobcats coaching gig, has pulled himself out of the running, he told Sam Amick at Sports Illustrated. “I took myself out today,” Sloan said by phone. “I don’t want to comment on it because it’s never profitable for…

  13. Karl Malone says he would have taken Pippen over Jordan

    Jun 13, 2012, 3:12 PM EDT

    Michael Jordan Scottie Pippen Flu Game

    Note to NBA team owners: Don’t make Karl Malone your general manager. Malone was on the Dan Patrick Show Wednesday, talking about the Dream Team (be sure to watch the new documentary on NBA TV tonight, it rocks) and as part of the conversation he talked about Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen. And Malone has…

  14. Isiah Thomas gets shredded in new Dream Team documentary

    Jun 12, 2012, 5:51 PM EDT

    1992-dreamteam

    Last night I watched a preview copy of the NBA Dream Team documentary that airs on NBA TV Wednesday, highlighting the 20th anniversary of the original (and greatest) Dream Team and their run up to and through the 1992 Barcelona Olympics. Watch it. It is fantastic stuff. Great stories, a reminder of how huge this…

    1992-dreamteam

    You probably have seen the commercials for the upcoming NBA TV Dream Team documentary, but we’re getting pretty pumped up for this. So we’re bringing you the trailer. Watch it again. And again. The original NBA Dream Team was 20 years ago this summer — a team with 11 Basketball Hall of Famers that steamrolled…

  16. Jerry Sloan to interview for Charlotte Bobcats coaching job

    May 23, 2012, 9:55 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Atlanta Hawks

    Jerry Sloan really does desperately want back into coaching. So much so he’s willing to take on what is arguably the worst job in the NBA right now — the Charlotte Bobcats — and will interview for the spot, the former Jazz coach told the Salt Lake Tribune. (The Charlotte Observer also had the story.)…

  17. Patrick Ewing gets turn in Bobcats interview chair Thursday

    May 17, 2012, 8:31 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v San Antonio Spurs

    Mr. Ewing, Mr. Cho will see you now. We knew that Patrick Ewing, and Orlando Magic assistant coach, was among the number of good young coaches going to interview for the vacant Charlotte Bobcats coaching gig. Turns out, Ewing is up on Thursday, according to the AP. So far the Bobcats also have interviewed Mike…

  18. New documentary includes look at game Dream Team lost

    May 14, 2012, 9:11 AM EDT

    1992-dreamteam

    We remember the original Dream Team — the pros sent to the 1992 Barcelona Olympics including Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Charles Barkley and others — just rolling teams. The won the Olympic gold medal by an average of nearly 20 points a game and had the opposing teams asking for autographs afterward. But…

  19. Today in shocking, shocking news: MJ might not be working as hard as an exec as he did as a player

    Apr 9, 2012, 7:49 PM EDT

    Michael Jordan

    Here’s an interesting quote from Sam Vincent on Michael Jordan, via the Washington Post’s Rick Maese: “The work he put in to be a great player and the work you put in to be a great executive, those are different things,” said Sam Vincent, whom Jordan hired as his head coach in 2007 less than…

  20. Jordan denies report he’ll sell Bobcats if they continue to suck

    Apr 2, 2012, 8:13 AM EDT

    Michael Jordan

    When NBA owners put their teams on the market, there are billionaires waiting in the wings who would love to snatch up one of these toys. Often guys who also want to move the teams. We’re looking at you, Larry Ellison. So whenever Michael Jordan does sell the Bobcats there will be a market —…

  21. Video: Michael Jordan holes one out from 55 feet

    Mar 30, 2012, 10:55 PM EDT

    Jordan golf

    Usually if we are talking about a 55-footer on this site, Jordan Farmar — or some other long-shot specialist — hoisted one up from the other side of half court to beat the buzzer and it happened to fall. Like say Dwyane Wade. But in this case we’re talking Bobcats owner Michael Jordan…. who as…

  22. Michael Jordan returned to the NBA 17 years ago today

    Mar 19, 2012, 3:02 PM EDT

    Michael Jordan

    Got a great reminder today from the guys at basketinside.com — they do a good job covering all that his happening in Europe — that it was March 19, 1995, that Michael Jordan returned to the Bulls after a couple of seasons swinging and missing at curve balls in the minor leagues. Seventeen years ago…

  23. The time Robert Parish refused to put up with Michael Jordan

    Mar 9, 2012, 6:37 PM EDT

    robert parish Bulls

    There is a fantastic story up at ESPNBoston.com looking at the end of the first “Big Three” in Boston — Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and Robert Parish. McHale and Bird finished their careers as Celtics, but people often forget that Parrish spent two years in Charlotte then went on to the 1996-97 Chicago Bulls —…

    Feb 22, 2012, 10:30 PM EDT

    Michael Jordan

    It’s been 14 years since Michael Jordan stepped on an NBA court (Washington? I choose not to remember that stop) and he is still the most valuable brand in basketball worldwide. By miles and miles and miles. Which is why NBA legend and current Bobcats owner Jordan — along with — Nike has a team…

    Utah Jazz v Chicago Bulls
